Great footage of strange hats from the Middle Ages, Elizabethan England, and ancient Egypt; of hairstyles of the Greeks and Romans; and of a caveman combing his matted tresses with a fish skeleton.
Extremely odd (and humorous) historical recreations of human beings and their relationship to their hair

Supposed Greek and Roman hairstyles;
Medieval castle; woman in ringlets; braids covered by fabric
many elaborate, exaggerated medieval scarfs and hats for men and women; jeweled hairnets; ruffles around necks; iron corset;
